Marlies Pöschl is an artist and filmmaker, currently based in Vienna. She holds degrees from the University of Applied Arts Vienna and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Marlies currently teaches as assistant professor at the department of art and digital media at the Academy of Fine Arts, Vienna.
The Golden Pixel Cooperative, a platform for artists’ films was co-founded by her in 2014, since that she has (co-)organised exhibitions and public events with GPC in Austria (Kunsthalle Exnergasse, 2016; 21er Haus, Vienna, 2016), as well as Iran (Limited Access Festival, Tehran, 2014) and China (Chronus Art Centre, Shanghai, 2017).
Her work has recently been presented in solo shows at CAC Brétigny, Museum auf Abruf, Donaufestival as well as Studios Lenikus, Vienna. She participated in festivals such as Antimatter Festival for Media Art (CA), Edinburgh International Film Festival (GB), Cinema Verité (IR), Diagonale (AT) and others.
Her work, situated on the border between Fine Arts, Literature and Film, investigates memory as well as the role of technology in caring labour. Coming from a background of performative and participatory projects, she often collaborates with non-professional actors and experiments with unconventional dramaturgical methods. Her work is focused on the lm set as a social environment as well as on filmmaking as a process.
